Tell Congress: No Clean Reauthorization of the PATRIOT Act

 

We need your immediate assistance! On March 15, 2020, Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act is set to expire. This deadline  gives us a great opportunity to get some transparency and accountability in the foreign surveillance system and end dragnet phone record surveillance once and for all. But, with a decent reform bill stalled in the House Judiciary Committee, pro-surveillance politicians have a chance to push for a straight-up reauthorization of

these invasive surveillance powers.  

Write to your elected officials and tell them enough is enough, vote NO on any “clean” reauthorization of Section 215.


Fight Government Surveillance

Families of Michigan prisoners paid thousands for calls to nowhere

Written by Beryl Lipton

Edited by Sarah Alvarez

Phone calls at Michigan’s Mecosta County Jail last year, current population 93, cost inmates and their families nearly $173,000, and records released by the Sheriff’s Department suggest only half of calls made were even connected, leaving inmates and family members to pay tens of thousands of dollars for calls that never happened.

“Their families have already been struggling for years. They’re taxed with court costs and fees, attorney bills and fees, and then they go into the system, and you want to provide extra food, and then, on top of it, you pretty much have to choose that you can’t afford to talk,” said Lisa Pullano, Executive Director of the Michigan-based Citizens for Prison Reform. “It’s creating huge barriers for families.”

According to the non-profit Prison Policy Initiative, the average cost of a 15-minute phone call from a Michigan jail is $11.89.

Understanding how poor a phone connection is can help a jail or prison hold its phone provider accountable and offer consumers a way to challenge overpriced or failing service. When Mecosta County switched vendors a few years ago, Captain Kevin Wood said he learned ICSolutions could provide the breakdown of completed calls. He had left the previous vendor due to a lack of transparency and trust; he was eager to have the information.

“You’ve kind of got to trust your provider who’s providing that service. If they’re not showing me those things, then maybe there’s something fishy going on,” Captain Wood said. “I have a whole bunch of different things that I do, so looking at inmate phone calls is not one of the things that I look at all the time.”

There is no guaranteed right to phone calls for inmates in the U.S. Most jails and prisons use private prison phone companies that handle the costs of equipment, installation, maintenance, and service. There is also, usually, a commission for the prison or jail. The Mecosta County Sheriff’s Department receives a 70% commission on each phone call.

ICSolutions did not respond to a request for comment by publication. A spokesperson for another prison phone service provider, Securus, told MuckRock unsuccessful calls can sometimes be explained by sending a call to voicemail, being declined or canceled for security reasons.

“There needs to be more transparency about exactly what we’re paying

Fort Bragg is warning the public that suspicious looking military activity could erupt on private land across multiple North Carolina counties next month as part of a cryptic Special Forces training exercise.

 

This could include hearing explosions and seeing soldiers acting as ”guerrilla freedom fighters,” according to a release from the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg.

Senators Lindsey Graham and Richard Blumenthal are quietly circulating a serious threat to your free speech and security online. Their proposal would give the Attorney General the power to unilaterally write new rules for how online platforms and services must operate in order to rely on Section 230, the most important law protecting free speech online. The AG could use this power to force tech companies to undermine our secure and private communications.

We must stop this dangerous proposal before it sees the light of day. Please tell your members of Congress to reject the so-called EARN IT Act.
